Recurring gift section shows $0 monthly gift amount when no suggested amounts are used in OLX donation form

In setting up a donation form and using the recurring gift option on the Extras tab in Online Express, the form's confirmation appears as "Your first gift <amount> will occur on <date>." If no suggested amounts are present on the form, then the first gift confirmation shows $0.00, even if an amount is entered in the Amount field.
This issue was resolved in the June 30, 2015 Online Express update
